  • Strawberry Chia Pudding raw vegan gluten free Funk You Foodadit

Chia seeds soak up ten times their own weight in water, so they're great for keeping hydrated and giving you energy. This chia pudding has a layer of strawberry purée on top, but you could use any fruit you like for this.


  • 3 tbsp chia seeds
  • approx. 125 ml water
  • approx 125 ml coconut milk

For the fruit topping

  • 5 dates
  • 1 tbsp chia pudding
  • ½ banana
  • 200 ml strawberries
  • raw cacao nibs for decoration

Here’s how you make it

  1. Put the chia seeds in a bowl and add a little water and coconut milk in equal amounts.
  2. Whisk with a fork and add a bit more water and coconut milk. Whisk again and leave for 20 minutes.
  3. Whisk the pudding again and see what the consistency is like. It should be fairly runny, as chia seeds soak up a lot of liquid. Whisk and leave to stand in the fridge or somewhere cool for three hours or over night.
  4. Check the consistency, and add water and coconut milk until it is to your liking.
  5. Take one tbsp of the pudding and place it in the blender with 5 dates (preferablly soaked beforehand), the half banana and the strawberries. Blend until smooth.
  6. Divide the chia pudding into four bowls or whatver you want to serve it in and then layer the fruit mixture on top.
  7. Sprinkle raw cacao nibs over the top, serve and enjoy!
